The size of your eardrum partially determines the upper frequency limit of your audible region, usually between 16,000 Hz and 20,000 Hz. If the wavelength is on the order of twice the diameter of the eardrum and the air temperature is 20 degrees Celcius, how wide is your eardrum?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have no idea how to do this problem. I have looked at the equations for sound, but I don't whether there is an equation that can calculate width.
